Studesville to interview for full-time Bronco gig

The Broncos are just 1-2 since Eric Studesville took over as head coach, but it's a pretty "good" 1-2, especially since the one win was a miracle comeback with Tim Tebow at the helm.

And it appears that Studesville's record has earned him a chance to interview for the full-time head coaching gig with Denver.

Mike Klis of The Denver Post cites confirmation from "several team officials" regarding Studesville's interview opportunity and also points out that under the interim coach, the team's identity has taken a turn for the better.

That's certainly a good point, although it's not hard to quietly go about business and create a better identity than Josh McDaniels brought to the organization.

Studesville has also handled some fairly delicate decisions during his three games (Tebow starting over Kyle Orton, rookie Perrish Cox getting arrested for sexual assault) and appears to be satisfied with the job he's done.

"Certainly in our business the won-loss record is the bottom line," Studesville said. "I feel like I've put every bit of myself into this opportunity. I don't regret a moment. I don't regret a decision."

However, his performance in 2010 may be moot, especially if the Broncos, as expected, sign John Elway to a front-office position.

A new regime bent on changing the culture and bringing back old-school Denver football (whatever that exactly means, who knows, but it involves Super Bowl wins and the 90's I believe) would probably be polite enough to talk with Studesville, but it would probably require no other big-name candidates emerging in the "deliberate" search they plan to conduct for the interim to land the gig full-time.

Studesville to interview for full-time Bronco gig

Me...let Tebow play if he is th eguy.  Orton was very consistent and I still like him.  They picked Tebow, so I guess he has to do it some time.  Bring in Fairley, and maybe one more guy on Lloyd... he is good.  Get a true fullback (shouldve kept Hillis).  Denver will be fine.  Elway is back in the saddle, and will bring the gloooooory back!!!!!

"Does it possibly occur to anyone that the interview with Studesville is just a formailty to be in compliance with the Rooney rule?"

Please.  They will interview Leslie Frazier also if the Vikings don't remove the interim tag.  Stop looking through "rose" colored glasses.  Give me a great man and a leader.  Then help in the front office with player evaluation and development.

It does to me. Pretty sure Pat Bowlen is intelligent enough that he is not going to make the same mistake twice in a row about coach hirings.

Studesville to interview for full-time Bronco gig

Did anyone watch Inside The NFL this week? Tebow wired for sound was AWSOME! Everything you look for in a leader! He may not have the mechanics of Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, but dude is a flat out winner! I look forward to wathching it unfold in the years to come. I'm also hoping we get Tony Dungy to come in! With him and Tebow in the Mile High City , God has to be in our corner!!! AMEN!

Studesville to interview for full-time Bronco gig

I think a lot of peeps were down on Studesville for that Raider game, and how we handled the playcalling.  Hindsight being 20/20, I think they handled it right, by not going too willy nilly with Tebow.  Bring him along slowly and increase his repotoire of plays each week.  Im OK with Studesville, if the Broncos hire him, then lets see what he can do, we know Cowher and Guden are out of the question, as the Broncos won't give them the control they want, that leaves Jason Garrett or Leslie Frasier, who will both probably be hired by their respective teams.

Studesville to interview for full-time Bronco gig

I don't care who the coach is...although a more experienced coach would ake me feel better.  In the past, the Broncos had total team players who knew that if you don't perform, youre on the bench, uless of course you're Elway, TD, Shannon, Eddie, Rod...hmmm, those guys always gave 100%.  So, bring in guys who will make a difference tell them they need to perfom.  Fairley would be nice from Auburn to work with Doom on the D-line, with the speed at LB and good CB play.  If Tebow is the guy, let him play, pass and run if necessary.  I amnot a Gator fan, and at one point I thought Tebow was overrated.  I think he had some great athletes at Florida.  But watching this guy play for Denver, as a Broncos fan, he has spirit and a captivating ora about him. 

I don't like Rivers, but Tebow has that intensity about him, like Rivers.  I think he wants to be good...maybe even great.  Give him the chance let im work, and ight for the job.  Orton did a good consistent job, not so much in his last two games.  Bring in a FB back Griffith was one good O-lineman, and the Broncos will be back.

Blow it up and start all over, especially on D

Interviewing for the head coaching position is one thing, getting hired is something completely different. Studesville seems like a good man and probably has potential to become a decent enough head coach. I'm not sure that he's a great fit for what the Broncos need right now. There will be some other candidates with a lot more experience as NFL head coaches available during the off season. I think that the memory of what transpired when hiring a head coach with little or no experience hasn't quite faded yet. One condition that should come with potentially hiring Studesville as the head coach is that the current assistant coaches, especially the OC and DC must go bye-bye. They also need to invest the vast majority of the upcoming draft picks in April on defensive players. I think that what KC has done recently is a good model and Denver fans better expect a couple of seasons of not winning more than a handful of games no matter who ends up getting hired as the next head coach. It does appear that we might have a decent QB or at least someone that will inspire us to watch the games. I hope that they draft wisely, Patrick Peterson seems like it would be a step in the right direction.
